Piccolo (ピッコロ, Pikkoro), also known as the Piccolo Daimaō (ピッコロだいおう, Pikkoro Daimaō; FUNimation "King Piccolo"; Literally meaning "Great Demon King Piccolo") was the once evil-half of God. He was introduced as a demon, until later being explained that he in fact was a Nameccian and the father of Piccolo Junior.

Background

Personality

Piccolo uses "washi" (儂) as his personal pronoun when old; befitting, as the pronoun is used commonly by elderly men, though he switches to "watashi" (私) when making his wish for eternal youth to Shenron, and soon switches to this pronoun completely.

Legacy

Piccolo's death would go on to influence future events for several years to come. Upon being defeated by Gokū, Piccolo released an egg containing his reincarnation, ensuring his life force remained connected to God, and indirectly making it possible to revive Shenron.

His reincarnation, Piccolo Junior would eventually challenge Gokū as intended, but eventually redeemed himself and became a valuable asset to the Dragon Team. In this new role, Piccolo would train Gohan, and later Goten and Trunks in the art of Fusion, grooming generations of new warriors to defend the planet he'd once hoped to rule.

Creation and Concept

Piccolo is believed to have been rather cheekily based by Toriyama on his then-editor, Kazushima Torishima,[4], and according to Torishima himself, Piccolo was also based on the Roman Emperor Nero.[5]

Trivia

  • Due to the fact that he and Dr. Mashirito are based on Kazuhiko Torishima, Piccolo is capable of fusing with Mashirito in Jump Super Stars.
  • In his native language of Nameccian, Piccolo's name translates to "different world".[6]
